How tight should com­pres­sion gear be?

Runner's World South Africa - - Personal Best -

Most qual­ity man­u­fac­tur­ers of com­pres­sion gar­ments will pro­vide de­tailed siz­ing charts (based on your height, weight, limb seg­ment lengths, etc.). Use those to find the per­fect fit. In gen­eral, it should feel no­tice­ably tight but not painful or pinch­ing. It won’t be as com­fort­able as track­suit pants! – Dr Abi­gail Stick­ford, as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor, De­part­ment of Health and Ex­er­cise Sci­ence at Ap­palachian State Univer­sity, US
